What did you do in the last 2 weeks? Your ST wants to know!

Post  Story "the Fray" Teller on Tue May 03, 2011 1:22 pm

For those who were gone last time, some explosive events occurred that thrust the game a couple of weeks into the future.

Tell me what your character did with her or his time! Bonus XP for good descriptions, rolls might be made and fates decided as necessary.

I suppose Eleazar has been in touch with Arthur regarding the recent tragedies, and has offered any help he can in bringing aid. Other than that, however, he has been creeping on rooftops and through the shadows of the city in search of information.

For one, he revisited the synagogue in which the suspicious rabbi dwelt and has interviewed members of the congregation about the man. He has also been through several other places of worship to see if anyone else has any information. In addition to this, Eleazar walks also with any and all mystics he can find--both amongst the Jewry and the gentiles--hoping to understand the signs of the age. Perhaps he found an enclave of ecstatically worshipping Hasids in Brooklyn and spent several days in a prayer trance along with them. Perhaps he also stood alongside a mystic cult, hoping to understand their devotion and worship. He has been practicing his rituals with those Jews that are interested in order to prepare to siege the blighted place beneath Columbia.

Moreover, he has been doing what he can to track information on Morris Lantern, having seen his drivers license. I am interested in anything suspicious or notable that I may find, although I doubt much will come of it. I'd say the priority has been more on the suspicious rabbi, however.

Eleazar splits his time sleeping in Arthur's haven (although not if Void is ever present), or melded into the streets themselves via Protean. He has also possibly been trying to dig up any possible Kindred contacts he may have had before he went to sleep for the last time in 1929. Any free time between these activities has been spent in meditation and practice, as Eleazar seeks to hone his fighting skills and his Iltani magic.

Nice, all of that makes a lot of sense. I'm going to figure out what it is you gained (e.g., information) or accomplished from each of those things below and post the results for you soon if that sounds good.

Hey Mike - So here's some information and such that Eleazar discovered:

1. Upon revisiting the Congregation Aderth El Talmud, where you first sensed the impression of the predatory rabbi, you were able--through a combination of mystical scrying and conversations with another rabbi and several other congregants (all seemingly oblivious to this rabbi's dark deeds)--that the name of the sinner you are looking for is Rabbi Yehoshua ben Chanania, a middle aged man in his 50s who had been at the synagogue for close to 10 years and was generally well-respected, if quite soft-spoken and downright meek. Upon visiting other synagogues nearby--including Sutton Place Synagogue at 225 East 51st Street--you learned that the Central Conference of American Rabbis at 355 Lexington Avenue is holding a city-wide conference of rabbis both orthodox and reform. You attended the evening reception, at which you were finally able to spot your quarry, the Rabbi ben Chanania... However, he was not alone. As you made your way through the crowd, your mystic sense revealed that at least three other rabbis at the conference were likewise tainted with the suffering of innocent children at their hands. You also could sense vaguely, elusively, somewhere in that room an unseen presence--not human and not kindred but something... else... perhaps inhabiting someone there. You get the distinct impression this has something to do with the others. In the meantime, however, you now have the whereabouts of Rabbi ben Chanania including his home address and some idea of his routine. The next move is yours.

2. From your communes with the "jew and gentile" mystics of the city you pick up on a common undercurrent of widespread 'experimentation.' Orthodoxy is dying out in favor of revisiting esoteric and forbidden knowledge with the younger generation desperately seeking any means of achieving power or altering the world around them with very little regard for the reason why forbidden knowledge is forbidden for a reason. You've also gotten a general read on the occult population of the city, it's enclaves, and a vague who's-who.
--> Game effect: You now have Contacts • (New York City Occultists) and also (NYC Jewish Community)

3. From your practice and recitation of mystical cleansing and abjuration rituals, you have gained insight and a focus and clarity that you feel heightens your effectiveness.
--> Game effect: First mystic ritual you perform will be at a +4 dice mod
--> Additionally, the first use of any Iltani discipline/ritual will be at a +2 for your meditation, preparation efforts

For the info on Morris Lantern and your kindred contacts pre-1929 I'll have you make rolls on Sunday to see what you turn up.
